New Study Puffin Painting

On this little 5″ x 7″ canvas I’ve sketched a puffin and started painting dots with acrylic.  These unusual looking birds can be found nesting in rocky  rookeries along the Alaska coastline during July.  This particular rocky island was festooned with beautiful wildflowers, a lovely place to explore.  We spent an afternoon climbing around the cliffs and boulders discovering many other waterfowl in the process of building nests.
